Pet snails - the best home pets
My Happy Snails
Snail daily sleep
Rather than being part of a 24-hour day, their sleep cycle lasted two to three days. Over a period of 13 to 15 hours, snails sleep in around seven bouts. This sleeping period is followed by roughly 30 hours of activity. If they lose sleep during their normal sleeping period, they seemingly have no need to make up for it.
1. Foods that that may have been treated with pesticide or contaminated by vehicle fumes, e.g. homegrown fruit and vegetables and dandelions. 2. Millet and Pasta can cause bloating (water-retention) through internal blockages and can result in the death of a snail. I'd avoid overly starchy foods, like rice also. These foods seem largely undigestible. 3. Salty foods - like most animals, snails do need small amount of salt to survive but salt is obviously dangerous in anything but tiny amounts.
It's during the gestation period that a snail's shell begins to form. The mantle is a crucial organ possessed by mollusks such as snails. Its function? Making and developing shells. Calcium carbonate is the primary ingredient in snail shells (though small amounts of protein also go into the mix). So in order to build these shells, the mantle creates an electric current that helps the organism push calcium ions into place.
